Boxing legend Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has claimed he’s in a position to make $300 million a month as both Jake and Logan Paul have said he’s “broke” and not paying up what he owes.
In June of 2021, Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul finally ended months of trash talk and stepped into the boxing ring for their highly-anticipated exhibition bout. Though, as it was an exhibition, no winner or loser was ever announced.
Logan, did though, shock everyone by going the distance with Floyd, but over a year on from the fight, the pair have remained embroiled in drama. The YouTuber has claimed that he’s owed in the region of $5 million for his part in the fight, and that he’ll take Floyd to court to get it.
His brother, Jake, has also gotten involved with the beef, repeatedly calling Floyd “broke” and claiming that he’s wasted his money. Though, the boxing legend says he’s got enough and he has disputed those claims.
Mayweather, who has a reported $1 billion career earnings from boxing, has invested in a number of business ventures, but there have been repeated claims that he’s got nothing from the Pauls, seeing as he hasn’t paid Logan.
According to the Mirror, Mayweather indirectly responded to those claims during his induction to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. “I will continue to give back to the sport of boxing in my time, and I will also give back financially because I got it,” Floyd said.
“To my team, my guys in New York, and my other real estate team that’s here today, we can’t be stopped. In 32 months, I put myself in a position with a smart business team to make $300m a month. It all started from the sport of boxing.”
Of course, the $300 million figure is incredibly lofty and there’s no real way of proving it unless Floyd was to open up his books. Though, his name holds incredible weight both in boxing and outside of it.
Why Logan has yet to be paid in full remains a mystery, even to him, but given that the pair have made a few claims about talks over a possible rematch, it’s not going away anytime soon.
